We have to configuration performance tuning for Oracle Identity Manager optimal performance such as application server,database and etc. I'll write some basic tuning settings recommended by Oracle.
Also, you can read this guide for other tuning settings such as caching and learn how to monitor Oracle Identiy Manager performance. http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27559_01/doc.1112/e28552/oim.htm
Basic UI Tuning :
Following are the recommended application module settings for OIM. Add these settings under WebLogic ServerAdministration Console>> Servers >> oim_server1>> Server Start >> Arguments and restart the admin server.
These recommended settings assume that 100 concurrent users per node. Use the below formula to change
Djbo.ampool.maxavailablesize if your # of concurrent users is different.
Djbo.ampool.maxavailablesize = # of concurrent users + 20%
Basic Server Tuning:
JVM Parameter HotSpot JVM JRockit JVM
Min. Heap Size (Xms) 4GB 4GB
Max Heap Size (Xmx) 4GB 4GB
PermSize (-XX:PermSize) 500m N/A
PermGen size (-XX:MaxPermSize) 1GB N/A
JDBC Connection Pool parameters:
Parameter name Value
Initial Capacity 50
Minimum Capacity 50
Max. Capacity 150
Inactive Connectiontimeout 30
To increase the capacity of the JDBC connection pools:
Goto WebLogic Server Administration Console and then Click Services=>Data Sources.
OIM also uses DirectDB data source and you can increase its capacity as below.
Go to Enterprise Manager -> Oracle Identity Manager -> System MBean Browser -> Application Defined MBeans -> oracle.iam -
>OIM Server -> Application oim -> XMLConfig -> Config -> XMLConfig.DirectDBConfig.
Set the following values for attributes.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? Why are we hearing so much about it nowadays? What does IoT mean for an enterprise like mine? Does it impact my IT infrastructure? Should I be invested in it or at least learn more about it? Is it for real or are we talking about a future technology? What does Oracle have to do with IoT.
We know some of you have questions like these in mind. Our February edition of the Oracle Fusion Middleware newsletter ran a feature that explores some of these questions. If you haven't already, do take a look at the feature. We hope that this is a start of a conversation. We look forward to hearing from you - questions, critique, feedback, your opinion(s), your observations and more; we'll take it. And if you haven't already, do subscribe to the newsletter.

Last week I attended the 2014 Mobile World Congress, the industry-defining event hosted in Barcelona, Spain, with over 85,000 attendees from over 200 countries, there was a wealth of learning and networking opportunities, product showcases and announcements, inspiration and innovation to be seen everywhere.
Today there is so much information at our fingertips, accessible anywhere, any time on many different "smart" devices. Being at the world’s largest mobile conference, I spend the entire first day being "mobile" (without opening up my wallet) – instead I used only my smartphone. I used the Hailo App to get my taxi from my hotel to the conference, I used the Mobile World Congress App to figure out my day’s schedule, to navigate from one location to the next and pre-order my food during the day, I used PayPal App to pay And I used Twitter, text and email to communicate with colleagues and contacts before returning back to my hotel to make a few phone calls back home.
My smartphone has easily become my most valuable tool for both personal and professional use – it holds a great deal of information and is integrated to so many different aspects of my life. During the conference I saw many new devices that will continue to transform the way I live, work and communicate but one thing is also clear that the integration and security for all of this information is more important than ever before. From the enterprises perspective, my smartphone is both a benefit and a liability. It certainly is an important productivity tool, however, if I were to loose it or it gets stolen then what happens to the corporate data.
Mobile not only represents new opportunities but has also introduced new set of challenges – for enterprises this is around corporate governance, integration, security and management just to name a few areas. And this was exactly the point that Oracle’s Mobile Strategy Vice President, Suhas Uliyar spent time discussing with customers, partners, and press. Read the article to learn more.
Oracle’s strategy is to simplify enterprise mobility -- offering a complete offering that includes out-of-the-box mobile apps, a mobile platform that you can use to develop, connect, and secure your own mobile apps, and mobile security that is integrated with the Oracle Mobile Platform and can also be leveraged separately as part of your overall enterprise security architecture. At Mobile World Congress there was a great deal of buzz around Oracle’s mobile offering, we’re certainly going to hear a lot more in 2014.
Stay connected (while integrated & secure) … and of course don’t leave without your smartphone!

Now your manager comes in, tells you what a great job you did on that app. Folks really like it… but now he wants you to expand it further. He wants new mobile apps that reach the main servers – where the mission critical apps live. Can you do that? We’ll need it to:
- Build an app to access the existing enterprise applications like PeopleSoft, Siebel, etc. We can’t afford a rewrite, but the execs want to mobile enable them to the field
- It has to be secure. Enterprise grade. Proven. No compromises here.
- SLAs (service level agreements). It needs to perform, and the apps performance needs to be measured, with reporting so we can see how the app is being used
- Caching. We don’t want to keep hitting our infrastructure unnecessarily. For the static data, there’s really no need to keep retrieving the same data over and over again when we can simply cache it, right?
What do you think? Can you do it?

... "Creating What’s Next?"
Flights to Barcelona were full, the airports were bustling, weeks leading up to this weekend, everyone was planning and prepping for the largest mobile event in the year. Over the course of the next four days, 24-27 February 2014, Mobile World Congress, Barcelona will host one of the world’s biggest mobile events. It is no wonder that Oracle, the #1 technology leader is also here in full force, ready to show off our capabilities across Mobile Platform and Mobile Security, Internet of Things, Communications, and much more. At this event Oracle will be speaking to customers, partners, press and analysts about many things including, Oracle’s Mobile Strategy.
I arrived this evening and before I left the airport I noticed at least 10 diferent kiosks for registration – all you needed was your ID and QR code, and there were teams of people excited to network and learn about the trends in their industry. As the mobile industry continues to diversify, how will the roles of the traditional and emerging members evolve and with what impact? In 2014, the Mobile World Congress Conference will examine the present and debate the future of this industry with in-depth analysis of the trends that are shaping it. From the Exhibition Hall to the Keynotes and in-depth sessions, there will be a lot to learn!
I am eager to meet with customers, partners, and learn as much as I can over this next week - and I will be sure to share with you on "what's coming next". Come join us at Mobile World Congress 2014 (Oracle Booth 3B20 (Hall 3)and learn more about Oracle Mobile @www.oracle.com/mobile

I guess the term thought leader means I share my thoughts with you, but actually I believe we are more successful if after reading my post you are the one doing the thinking, more of a Thought Provoker than leader.
The social world in which we now all reside, makes thought more visible and so much easier to share. Communities share, and all the areas they touch overlap and create the outreach we all feed from. In this post I want to share a story about one small outreach, the chain of events behind it, and what that teaches us.
In my bio I am introduced as an Oracle ACE Director and so I thought I start my story with a little bit more about it, because these are people you should follow.
For those who are recognised subject leaders and who are very active advocates, speakers, authors, bloggers there is the ACE Director designation, which I am very proud to be part of.
This community of ACE Directors has spawned a few initiatives one of which I am very honoured to have been a catalyst for, the Applications UX Advocate program. Here a group of us in the Middleware area have been working with Oracle Development looking at the User Experience and the discipline and research invested in by Oracle. We have learned through workshops and collaborative projects and in turn present in usergroup events to share back to the wider community. The value to Oracle above us simply being advocates is the feedback from a wide range of experts about the applications and approach.
One of my peers here is Sten Vesterli, a quiet Dane who likes in his spare time to compete in Triathlons, Sten is a thought leader in the development world and his latest book ADF Enterprise Application Development - Made Simple has been very well received. As part of the UX advocates group when we were looking at the design patterns used by the Fusion Applications development teams, Sten sked if these could be shared with the wider development community. Not long after they were. Sten has recently started a newsletter series called Technology that Fits which I recommend to all Oracle AppAdvantage followers. Sign up now.
Last year Oracle released ADF mobile, and the adoption is widespread. Mobile has taken over the way we work, in fact I am typing this on my iPad mini as I fly to a diving holiday in the Philippines! In business we see mobile or the need for mobile everywhere. If you are using or thinking of ADF mobile look no further than OTN for the design patterns created after 1,000s of hours research by the UX team, allowing you to adopt industry standard, proven designs quickly and make your mobile applications efficient and easy to adopt.
This is a very practical example of the benefits of using social in business. Oracle through their flagship OTN community, initiated the ACE program which reaches out to all users of Oracle technology and spawned from that was the UX program and then Sten, an individual component set off the chain of events that led to a valuable resource being made available free to that community.
Social could be an enabler for your business, and the Oracle social tools may be your Oracle AppAdvantage entry point.

Have you sat through one too many slide presentations? Watched one too many technology videos? And now you’re thinking to yourself – just show me a working app. Something I can play around with myself…something out in the wild and readily available.
To borrow a line from Jerry Maguire – "SHOW ME THE MONEY!"
Enter BalaVenkataraman ... Chief Architect for Texas Industries(TXI), the largest supplier of cement in Texas, whom I had the pleasure to meet last December at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development and Integration (AADI) Summit in Las Vegas. Bala led TXI’s efforts to help their customers track their cement shipments with real-time data and tools on their mobile devices by using Oracle ADF Mobile to build mobile applications for iOS and Android.
I saw Bala’s demo, who was the guest presenter for Suhas Uliyar’s (Oracle VP for Mobile Strategy) presentation discussing Oracle’s mobile strategy. Sure there were informative slides, and at the end of the day, Bala got to show off his company’s deployed mobile app that was available on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play. It was a live demonstration, using real, live data. The audience loved it!
As Bala noted, time was of the essence. The mobile apps were delivered to iOS and Android in a matter of weeks. And just as I learned from Bala, when you see those cement trucks on the road – they have to deliver within 90 minutes, or that load of cement goes bad – so they deliver on time – just like Bala did with ADF Mobile for TXI. ;-)
